Can u explain, extraluminal cavities extendin into the lateral sides of pelvis alongside anastomosis in bowel, on both sides extension up to acetabulum

Radiologist reading: This sounds like the interpretation of a radiologist read from a post operation film. Right after your surgery there are changes to be expected. If you doctor removed a segment of bowel then there is space created. This is being interpreted as extra luminal (phenobarbital) cavity. Over time it resolves.

Any Infectious Disease doctor should be able to help. Read more
